It makes sense that if you removed all of the removable bloat and/or system apps you would free up storage. However, I seem to remember from the S4 forums a few years ago that deleting the bloatware or unnecessary system apps would not recover the lost storage (i.e. get closer to 16gb).

Will deleting bloatware and/or system apps (only the "safe" ones, of course) recover lost storage space?

You kind of answered your own question. Free up userspace (8GB free to 9.5GB free for example), yes; Lost space from the system (10.5GB to 13.5GB for example), no.
